Church Of England Combined School

An Academy of the Great Learners Trust


Welcome to Great Missenden Pre-school!

We follow the same creative curriculum approach as the main school.  This year, the children will be joining Reception Class in learning about the following topics:

  • Marvellous Me!
  • Celebrations and Christmas around the World
  • The Gruffalo and Friends
  • At the Bottom of the Garden
  • Farmyard Fun
  • Amazing Animals


Our topic this half term, 'Farmyard Fun', will provide opportunities to learn about different farms, animals and their babies, and farm produce.  We will be visiting Wren Davis Farm and will continue planting and caring for plants in our Pre-school garden.



Daily Routine

The children have a choice of free play activities and planned experiences each day, as well as daily phonics inputs. 



The children will have a phonics input each session, where they will learn sound discrimination, and oral blending and segmenting skills.  As the year progresses, we will also learn letter sounds and actions.  We follow the recommended Department for Education 'Letters and Sounds' scheme with resources from a variety of sources to support learning.   


Water Bottles / Drinks

Please provide a named water bottle for your child to access throughout the day.  Following the school's healthy eating policy, please can these contain water and not juice.  We do provide water if you forget a water bottle, and the children can also choose to drink milk at snack time.


Family Fun Afternoons

We have a family fun sessions every half term from where we welcome parents to come in and spend the afternoon in the classroom. Each session will have different theme and these are on different days of the week to try and cater for everyone to be able to join us.
